Subject: Great show
If I'm not mistaken, the band was playing this night with a "DJ" mixing video clips along with the music on screens flanking the stage, akin to someone mixing beats. Tastefully done, a visually stunning addition to an equally stellar musical performance. During Warhead Boogie the band turned to face the screens jamming with inspiration from the video clips including mixes of Dr. Strangelove. Visually arresting, aurally intriguing, brilliant.

Well, this show is the absolute tits!

Love RRE & love it when the bring such talented musicians up onto the stage with them.

Oh to be twenty years younger with no job & responsibilities . . . why people aren't going on RRE tour I'll never understand.

Great show! The boys have to get Scott Law to some more NY/NJ shows. The end of the second set is surreal. I will be enjoying this one for a long, long time!
